Changes to the State of Texas Position Classification Plan
Legislative action is required to implement any changes to the Position Classification Plan (Plan). The Plan is part of Article IX of the General Appropriations Act.
Prior to each session, the State Classification Team reviews the Plan and makes recommendations to add new positions or titles, delete positions that are no longer necessary, and identify positions for which the salary range may not be competitive with market pay.
As part of the review process, the State Classification Team requests feedback from agencies about issues or concerns they have with the Plan. During the review, the State Classification Team gathers salary data, analyzes it, and provides results in a published report for the Legislature.
After the close of the legislative session, the State Classification Team updates job descriptions and publishes a conversion manual that reflects changes to the Plan, as adopted by the Legislature and incorporated into the General Appropriations Act.
